PhoenixNAP announced the release of its new Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).
Designed specifically for automated recovery of Tier 1 applications and systems in the event of an unforeseen calamitous event, DRaaS can help get mission critical data back online quickly, and can be customized to differing customer needs.
“One of the most important things for any business is a cohesive disaster recovery plan and strategy,” said Ian McClarty, president of phoenixNAP. “However, the particulars of that plan should not be glossed over or subjected to a cookie-cutter type of solution. Businesses that take the time to really examine what recovery time and recovery point objectives are acceptable, and work with a DR provider to identify needs and tailor a solution, can be much more prepared to handle any situation.”
PhoenixNAP engineering teams design, test, pilot, and deploy each DRaaS solution so that customers’ mission critical applications and systems recover as designed. Furthermore, DRaaS incorporates enterprise-class next generation software and virtual infrastructure to enable continuous replication and provide low RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and RPO (Recovery Point Objective).
“No one wants to be waiting around for systems to come back up when something happens, so low RTO and RPO are very important,” said William Bell, VP of product development for phoenixNAP. “To help ensure these remain low, we stress test and benchmark our infrastructure and also perform redundancy testing to the lowest component, along with security testing and scanning on external connection points. We understand that a DR system must function when it needs to, and have taken steps to make sure our DRaaS infrastructure is as highly available as possible.”
Disaster Recovery as a Service features Zerto’s BC/DR technology built into its architecture to provide the highest levels of efficiency and functionality. It also includes two complimentary DR tests per year and 30 days of free run time in the event of a disaster.
